Genesis 3:12

And the man said, The woman whom you gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat.
Read Chapter 3

Ephrem The Syrian

AD 373
Once again Adam failed to confess his fault, laying the blame on the woman who was like him: "The woman with whom you provided me gave me of the Tree and I ate. [ Gen. 3:12 ] I myself did not approach the Tree, nor was it my hand which presumed to stretch out for the fruit." This is why the Apostle too says, "Adam himself did not sin, but Eve transgressed the commandment." [ I Tim. 2:14 ] But if He gave you a wife, Adam, He gave her as a helper and not as a harmer, as someone who receives instructions, rather than as one who gives orders.

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
